Ferris Mower Reviews & Buyer Guide

For lawnmowers that offer superior performance and unmatched durability, Ferris is a name you can count on.

Incepted way back in 1909, Ferris industries started out as the Uebler Milking Machine Company—a company that manufactured high quality milking machines for small dairy farmers in upstate New York.

By 1809 and due to disappearing profits, and the small dairy farms the company served, Ferris shifted its focus on manufacturing commercial lawn mowers.

Awarded with the prestigious Innovation award from the Outdoor Equipment Power Institute in 1987 for the first hydrostatic drive walk-behind mower, the company made headlines again with the introduction of the first ever independent suspension for the riding mower.

4 Reasons to Choose a Ferris Commercial Lawn Mower

1. Multi-Patented Suspension Technology

Ferris commercial mowers are equipped with multi-patented suspension technology that is engineered to reduce the effects of uneven terrain, resulting in no shock to the chassis, and your body.

The suspension is designed to absorb the bumps and vibrations that cause operator fatigue, and increase your productivity to get the job done faster.

2. iCD™ Cutting System

The iCD cutting system delivers top notch performance in a variety of different conditions.

It features an extra wide opening to help discharge clippings quickly and evenly, and a sloped nose design that allows you to cut at higher speeds without compromising on the quality of cuts.

The top center portion of the cutting deck is crafted from two layers of 10-gauge steel for great durability and performance. Additionally, the cutting system features an offset center point that optimizes air flow.

This two-belt deck is fitted with steel arms to prevent the belt from dislodging from the backside idler with a dust shield.

The pulley in the deck of Ferris mowers features deep grooves for smoother operation, and prevents the belt from dislodging or rolling away from the pulley.

3.  Unique Oil Guard System

Ferris mowers feature a first in class oil guard system that extends the maintenance intervals up to 500 percent.

This means that you spend less oil, and can cut for up to 500 hours until the next oil change. Plus, Ferris mowers are easy to maintain with their easy fill cap, and integrated oil filter for easier, cleaner and faster tool free changes.

4. EFI – ETC Technology

 Ferris mowers are equipped with EFI and ETC engines from Vanguard. EFI (electronic fuel injection ensures a more reliable startup at any temperature, and greatly reduces fuel consumption.

ETC (electronic throttle control) helps maintain smooth, consistent power in any condition. It features a flywheel speed sensor that sends a signal to the throttle body when it detects a change in RPM to ensure consistent engine speed.
